Framed Elegance

I was recently offered a spot on the
Catchy Crafts Creative Team 
which I was most excited about, especially when a lovely box of goodies 
turned up at my door.

  "Framed Elegance" 
is the first of my projects to be published.
The thought behind this project, was to create a modern version
of a miniature portrait from 100 years ago. 


I cut the Medallion Frame from black card and again from bronze glitter paper, 
taking out the centre from the black, 
which allowed the glitter frame to sit snug within the black card. 

A narrow glitter border was added before adhering to another black mat.

I stamped up 'Les Chateaux de la Loire', coloured in the elegant girl,
cutting an oval shape around her [again with the Medallion Frame]
which allows her to sit perfectly within the glitter frame.

A smidgen of a co-ordinating Gelly Roll pen adds some shimmer to her bodice and tiara.
